NEW STANDARDS PROJECTS

Development work has begun on the following new or revised standards. Directly and materially affected individuals are invited to contribute to the development of such standards. Those wanting to participate may contact the Program Manager listed with the document.

Participation on AWS Technical Committees and Subcommittees is open to all persons.

B2.1-1-303:20XX, Standard Welding Procedure Specification for Naval Applications (SWPS-N) for Gas Tungsten Arc Welding Followed by Shielded Metal Arc Welding of Carbon Steel (S-1), 1/8 inch [3 mm] through 1-1/2 inch [38 mm] Thick, MIL-70S-2 and MIL-7018-M, in the As-Welded or PWHT Condition, Primarily Plate and Structural Naval Applications
This standard contains the essential welding variables for carbon steel in the thickness range of 1/8 inch [3 mm] through 1-1/2 inch [38 mm], using manual gas tungsten arc welding followed by shielded metal arc welding. It cites the base metals and operating conditions necessary to make the weldment, the filler metal specifications, and joint designs for groove and fillet welds. This SWPS-N was developed primarily for naval applications that require performance to NAVSEA Technical Publication S9074-AQ-GIB-010/248, Requirements for Welding and Brazing Procedure and Performance Qualification.

  • Stakeholders: Navy, manufacturers, shipyards, welders, engineers, and CWIs
  • New Standard
  • Staff Contact: J.M. Rosario, ext. 308

C2.27M/C2.27:20XX, Guide for Thermal Spray Masking
The purpose of the guide is to offer guidelines to help an Operator choose the most efficient methods for thermal spray masking. The guide serves to highlight potential problems related to masking and to provide options for overcoming those challenges. The guide defines masking methods relative to various thermal spray coating processes and strategies for improving effectiveness and time savings. Recommended setup for the masking area is presented including tools, layout, and design.

STANDARDS FOR PUBLIC REVIEW

AWS was approved as an accredited standards-preparing organization by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) in 1979. AWS rules, as approved by ANSI, require that all standards be open to public review for comment during the approval process. This column also advises of ANSI approval of documents. The standards listed below are under public review. A draft copy may be obtained through the AWS staff contact for the respective standard. Send correspondence to AWS, Standards Development, 8669 NW 36 Street, #130, Miami, FL 33166-6672; telephone (800/305) 443-9353.
